Bella's "Sam" has a Birthday.....

Sam turned TWELVE today! I love this little man more than he will ever know! He is sensitive, funny, and so helpful. He just loves Bella and is so tender with her. After opening his gifts tonight, he told us all "The best birthday present was my early birthday present -- BELLA!"

Bella loved helping me get the presents ready in the gift bags and was quite perplexed over our bad rendition of the "Happy Birthday" song.

We praise and thank God for Sam - our very special 12 year old!


  1. Ok, I cried over his thankfullness for his new sister, what an awesome kid!

    Happy Birthday Sam!!

  2. So sweet! Happy Birthday Sam!
